Coffee anyone?

Have you been thinking of making a coffee cup cozy for yourself or your favorite coffee lover? I know that I have. Being the crafty person that I am, I have a pile of left over fabric from past projects, and since a coffee cozy would not need very much fabric I thought it would be a good way to use up some of that left over fabric.

My first thought was to just take the cardboard sleeve that comes on the coffee cup and make a pattern. And then I got an email from Embroidery Library that said that they had a project tutorial. PERFECT! Let someone else figure out the "how to" and I can just make it.

The one that they made is for a coffee mug, not a coffee cup that you would get at the coffee shop, but the one thing that I really like about it is that it uses two pieces of elastic in loops and button to form the cozy around the mug. What a great idea! Now you don't have to worry that the cozy you made will not fit the mug you have, or the person you give it to, since the elastic loops will stretch to make it fit!
